Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
.. But solar in Germany is daft. If you are intent on powering civilization from renewable energy you have to respect the physical geography you want to extract energy from. Winter happens.

A sane renewable energy policy for Germany of the same financial magnitude as the solar tarrif commitments -

Desertec and HVDC, North Sea Wind and Hydraulic Hydro storage a-la Eduard Heind for example, would have displaced far more fossil fuel from the grid. Heck, just building the storage facility and leveling out the load on the french reactors would have done that.
